The passing of Ron Cleevely

The Society is very saddened to announce that Honorary Member, Ron Cleevely passed away, at his Devon home, on 26 February 2017.

Ron joined the Society in 1971 and soon became a stalwart member, especially indexing the Yearbooks (from 1963 through to 1993). In 1982, in recognition of his indexing work, Ron was made an Honorary Member of the Society. He also belonged to the Cape Heath Group, and he and Ros attended the party at Dr Violet Gray’s garden, Hindhead, in 1973 (Heathers 2: 38). Ron was Assistant Editor of the Yearbook from 1994 to 2001.

Ron became a Member of the Council of the Society in 1994, a position which he retained until 2001. In 1997 he was elected Hon. Secretary, retiring in 2001.

The Heather Society wishes to extend sincere condolences to Ron’s wife, Ros Cleevely, for her sad loss.
